I am trying to block off some openings on my Delta cot. saw and Isaw somewhere on this forum someone had used magnetic sign material. Where would that be available

I use magnetic signs on my van...use the yellow pages and any of your local sign companies should have various weights.
Good idea...I have some old ones stuck on the inside of my garage door...now I know what to do with them.

In lew of magnetic signs, I found another tip that I used. Foam rubber.
I was able to block up both contractor saw bodies with it. I got it from packaging foam. It was/is about 1 1/8-1 1/4" thick and I cut strips to stuff up around the table to body areas and used large pieces for the back areas.
Best part of it was it allows the DC to breath in the saw dust readily, but doesn't let it out.
Cured the finite areas around the cranks and the miter angle slot.
On occasion when I forgot to move it the belt just eats its own slot in the foam. I was leary at first of the foam around moving parts, but it has proven to work fine and no boo-boo's as of yet.
Had it in the saws for about 4-5 months and it has really cut down on the "stray" saw dust and sanding dust.
